There are many easy ways to give to The LAM Foundation. Below are some of the programs where your gift can make a big difference!
The Matching Gift Program is a great way to increase the impact of your gift to The LAM Foundation. Many companies have matching gift programs that increase your contribution. Every $1 you give can become $2 or in some cases, even more for the Foundation! Check with your Human Resources department for information on this program. Typically there is a form that you send to the Foundation in order to confirm your gift. Once you make your donation, send us the form and we’ll handle everything else. Spread the word about this program. If you have questions about matching gifts please contact the Foundation at (513) 777-6889 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.

If your company is listed, be sure to take the appropriate steps to secure the match of your personal donations. If your (or a loved one’s) company is not listed and has a matching gifts program, please let us know and help us grow the list.

Planned Giving simply means that you are planning to give a gift in the future. The most common planned gift is the ‘bequest', which means remembering The LAM Foundation in your will. Would you, your family, or friends consider naming The LAM Foundation as the recipient of a planned estate gift? Other forms of planned giving are the Charitable Remainder Trust and the Charitable Gift Annuity.
If you would like to learn more about the tax benefits and other advantages of Planned Giving, please contact The LAM Foundation at (513) 777-6889 or the Development Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Sue Byrnes Legacy Fundplus
To preserve her vision, The LAM Foundation Board of Directors has created the Sue Byrnes Legacy Fund which will support the Foundation’s strategic priorities to expand support of basic and clinical research, offer innovative ways to connect LAM patients and families globally, and improve clinical treatment and diagnostics for patients with LAM. “This fund will sustain momentum, facilitate growth and perpetuate Sue’s vision for many years to come,” says LAM Foundation Past Board Chair, Laura Lentz.

In Kind Giftsplus
Donating in-kind gifts is another great way to support The LAM Foundation. An in-kind gift can help generate revenue streams through silent auctions, raffles, and services provided. You can also help the Foundation spare expenses by donating office equipment that may be needed, such as printers, laptops, etc. Some of the types of services that are always in demand by the Foundation are graphic designers for brochures and appeals, experienced grant writers, and website reviewers.
Consider donating to the silent auction at the Breath of Hope Gala. We can use most items or services that are national and can travel well. Gift certificates, services, gift baskets, jewelry, and even timeshares or vacation homes have been donated in the past.
** Please note that items can be accepted at all times, based on need. Please contact the Development Office at (513) 777-6889 or via email at
